MahaRERA Introduces a QR Code for Accessing Project Details

In a significant move towards promoting transparency in the real estate sector, the Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA) has launched a groundbreaking initiative by introducing a Quick Response (QR code) on housing projects.

The innovative initiative will come into place from August 1, 2023, and allow homebuyers to access critical information about housing projects, including construction progress, project completion issues and deadlines, and more, by simply scanning the QR code.

This article explores the benefits of the QR code and its potential impact on buyers in Maharashtra.

Benefits of MahaRERA

Here are some of the notable benefits of MahaRERA:

Access to critical information 

MahaRERA has mandated developers to provide updates on the MahaRERA project details, like construction progress and financial updates, on a quarterly and half-yearly basis. This information is included in Form 5, which homebuyers can easily access by scanning the QR code.

This can help homebuyers stay informed about the progress of their chosen projects. The transparency in construction progress and financial updates will likely foster trust between homebuyers and developers and reduce uncertainties and potential disputes.


The integration of QR codes on project registration certificates can contribute to transparency and accountability. Homebuyers can access comprehensive project details and have access to critical information that fraudulent sellers or realtors may hide from them.

The initiative will also save homebuyers time and effort and offer them an easy and convenient way to get the necessary information to make informed decisions without having to go out of their way.

Furthermore, starting from “1st August 2023,” the promoter must prominently feature a QR code on all project promotions or advertisements. The QR code must be displayed in a legible, readable, and detectable manner using a software application. It should be published alongside the MahaRERA registration number and the website address.

This mandate applies to various mediums of promotion and advertisement, including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, journals, printed flyers, brochures, catalogues, leaflets, prospectus, standees on project sites and sales offices, websites and webpages of projects, social media advertisements, and any other mediums directed by MahaRERA where QR codes can be published. As promoters adhere to these guidelines, homebuyers can have easy access to vital project details and enhance transparency in the real estate sector.

Using the QR code for MahaRERA online

Here are the steps to use the OR code for MahaRERA-registered projects:

  • Obtain the project registration certificate: The project registration certificate contains the QR code and can be obtained from the MahaRERA portal online.
  • Scan the QR code: One can use a smartphone or a QR code scanning app to scan the QR code.
  • Retrieve information: Once the QR code is scanned successfully, relevant project details will be displayed on the device screen.
  • Review the information: Homeowners can carefully review the project details and analyse the construction progress, project timelines, and any other information that is crucial for making an informed decision about the property purchase.

In the case of any issue, one can use the conciliation forum to raise a dispute.
